Localization, morphology, anatomy and ultrastructure of osmophores in species of Rhamnaceae

The location and abundance of papillae are the most important traits that allow us recognize and characterize the osmophores in Rhamnaceae, which do not seem to have any systematic value.

Contribution of carbonates and oxalates to the calcium cycle in three beech temperate forest ecosystems with contrasting soil calcium availability

Calcium (Ca) is an essential macronutrient which plays a fundamental role in ecosystem structure and function. In temperate forest ecosystems, Ca oxalate is ubiquitous, existing in live and

The X-ray Fluorescence Microscopy Beamline at the Australian Synchrotron

A hard x‐ray micro‐nanoprobe has commenced operation at the Australian Synchrotron providing versatile x‐ray fluorescence microscopy across an incident energy range from 4 to 25 keV. Two x‐ray probes

Calcium oxalate in soils, its origins and fate – a review

Calcium oxalate, a mineral of low solubility, is found widely in plants, but its fate in soils has been neglected until recently. This review considers the likely forms and reactions in soils that

Studies of Litter in Eucalyptus regnans Forests

Lyrebirds are important 'cultivators' of the forest floor and litter may be buried once every two years, and Rapid nutrient turnover, high rainfall and excellent soil structure are favourable for high growth rates of these forests.

The effects of foraging by the superb lyrebird (Menura novae-hollandiae) in Eucalyptus regnans forests at Beenak, Victoria

In an early spar-stage stand of Eucalyptus regnans at Beenak, Victoria, foraging by lyrebirds in bare floor areas on steep slopes results in a complex microtopography of excavations, accumulations
